Tilghman Island Profile


Overview

Tilghman Island is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 755 people and just one neighborhood, Tilghman Island is the 232nd largest community in Maryland.

Housing costs in Tilghman Island are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Maryland.

Occupations and Workforce

Tilghman Island is a blue-collar town, with 40.04% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Tilghman Island is a town of sales and office workers, farmers, fishers, or foresters, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Tilghman Island who work in office and administrative support (28.80%), farm management occupations (23.08%), and sales jobs (7.89%).

You will also find that a lot of people in Tilghman Island work in agricultural jobs - much more than in the average community in America. This will be quite apparent if you drive around town, as much of the landscape is dedicated to farms.

A relatively large number of people in Tilghman Island telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.26% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Tilghman Island is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Tilghman Island’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

In addition, Tilghman Island is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Because of many things, Tilghman Island is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Tilghman Island really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Tilghman Island perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Tilghman Island is worth considering.

Tilghman Island is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

Tilghman Island is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.

Tilghman Island Demographics

The percentage of people in Tilghman Island who are college-educated is somewhat higher than the average US community of 21.84%: 26.25% of adults in Tilghman Island have at least a bachelor's degree.
